When filmmaker Herbert Alfonso and Glenn de Randamie (Typhoon) travel to Ghana to explore polyrhythm and West African spirituality, they discover that 'home' is more than the place where they grew up.
In this poetic documentary, filmmaker Herbert Alfonso and musician Glenn de Randamie (Typhoon) return from a trip to 'The Motherland' Ghana, where they explored polyrhythm and West African spirituality. But once they are back on Dutch soil, it turns out hard to put the impact of their spiritual quest for the core of their rootsinto words. In fragmented form, they amalgamate their insights, feelings and personal impressions with the basic principles of the vodun religion, wrapped in a unique musical and visual experience.
